  1. Is postage an option? I regret not picking this up from Shambo when it was available before

  4. It's possible they're designed to accommodate through-body stringing, which is why the string doesn't taper where it meets the post. The Fender flats are the same; on the E string, it makes almost a full wrap of the tuner post before it starts to taper. I find it odd that the JMJ Mustang comes with Fender flats as standard if the E is too long for a 34" scale bass, given that the Mustang is a short scale bass. On the Dunlops, I've had mine on a week, and I'm very happy with them. They’re far smoother than the Fenders, and although some of the Dunlops are a heavier gauge than the Fenders (45-105 vs 50-100), the flexibility makes them feel a lot lighter.
  5. I offered 3 telecaster pickguards on Facebook for free, provided the first person to claim them paid the postage (£3). A guy has been telling me for four days now that he's going to PayPal me the money. Still hasn't done it. Facebook is the worst selling platform by quite a distance.
  6. I had a set of Fender 9050M (55-105) on my P Bass for a while and they were far too stiff for me. I swapped them for a set of 9050ML (50-100) and they certainly had more give, but the D and G strings in particular made fretting a bit of a chore. I stuck a set of Dunlop 45-105 flats on yesterday, and the difference is like night and day. The Dunlops have far more flexibility and makes playing much easier. The Dunlops also seem to have some sort of coating on the silks at either end, so hopefully there won't be any fraying.
  7. Fender 9050ML long scale flatwound bass strings. Bought these in November and put them on my P Bass, so have had 8 months use, but they're stiffer than I would like. Asking for £15 plus £2 postage.
  8. If it's of any use to anyone, these are direct drop-ins for Squier Classic Vibe basses, and other top-end Made in China Squiers. I've had a set on my Matt Freeman P Bass for a few years now.
  9. Sorry, I thought you'd maybe used them before. I'll have a look into it.
  10. What are the tension like on these? I've got Fender flats on my P Bass and the tension makes fretting a bit of a chore.
  11. I bought one of these from @KiOgonlast month, and its tremendous. I replaced the stock pots in my Squier Matt Freeman P Bass and the difference is incredible, particularly the tone control. Really well made, and well worth the money!

  13. Added a gold anodized pickguard to my Squier and put in a Kiogon wiring loom with Bourns mini pots because the stock mini pots had a smaller thread size and wouldn't have fitted. Having a decent tone pot makes a huge difference! The eagle-eyed will notice that there's a screw missing between the knobs because the hole sits over the cavity slightly, but I'll sort that eventually.
  14. Squier Matt Freeman Precision > Peavey Century 120 > Ampeg B115E (and a Fender Champ 600 just edging into the shot (not for bass)).
  15. Is there anywhere that sells or makes wooden Fender-style thumb rests/tug bars? I'd like an ebony one or similar dark wood rather than the cheap rubbish plastic one I've got as it's cracked at one end from over tightening, but I can't seem to find them anywhere.
